A French clock, hymn cards and a vintage wire basket....

                                  Good Tuesday morning !!!  Hope everyone enjoyed their Mother's Day....
                                             we went to the flea market and boy did I find some wonderful things.....
                                first this little french clock...I have seen them for sale for up to $100 but I paid...are you ready....$ 12...I love it!  Then I found these wonderful little #'s..they are from an  old church used on the hymn board...I got quite a few of them for $10....wait,theres more.....
                                   I saw this old wire rack from quite a distance and knew I wanted it...
                                         this was the most expensive thing I bought $20...but it was so worth it !

                                        Then Meg spotted a booth with old letters and envelopes...
                                            oh my beating heart..just what I needed to fill my wire basket !!!!
                      I love the way they all work together like it was meant to be...I went for that real Jeanne D'arc look that I love so much....thanks for coming by..talk soon! x0x0

Chrissy, what wonderfully charming finds. The clock, amazing! I love that you got such a deal. I have a vintage alarm clock I also paid only a few bucks for, and since then have seen them for exorbitant prices. The wire basket is just beautiful, and what makes it all so special? Your designing touches. The mantle looks simply dee lish. xxx tami

Lara said...

We are so alike - when I see something from a distance at a flea market.. I know exactly what to do. :) It is a good sign of really knowing & narrowing down what you really like! Such wonderful finds! And I love the clock & the price you got for it! I have been itching for one of those cute vintage clocks! Don't you just love when you score so many great things all at once?
Big Hugs,
Lara :)

Wanda @ Just Vintage said...

Wow! Those are wonderful finds! I love the lamp over them, too. You're right. They all work together like they were meant to be. And work with everything that was already there.
